Bob with some incredible saves early. Not much to do on the goal Beagle scored.

Suck it, Pittsburgh. And yes, I mean the whole city.

Is it necessary to spot the Caps another 2 goal lead?

Is it me or does it feel like we haven't had a shot on goal for 10 minutes

Amazing pass. Nice finish by Cam. Already ahead of where they were in game 1.

Well, we knew that Ovie was gonna get his. Still gotta limit opportunities.

Suck it, Pittsburgh. And yes, I mean the whole city.

Hmm - Caps are 4 for 8 in pp in series. We should probably try and stay outta the box for the rest of this game / series.

Great passing and great finish by 77! So glad he wasn’t suspended!

Great chance to tie it up here.

I'm tellin' ya, that glove side is weak. Grubauer looks so uncomfortable using the glove. No fundamentals.

Quite frankly, the Caps’ sloppiness and lack of discipline is what is keeping us in this.  That is why we cannot return the favor and give them PP opportunities.  The way their PP is working tonight, you might as well just give them an automatic goal.

Super class from Washington fans booing the stoppage in play. /s

There's a pattern emerging that the Jackets get stronger as the game goes on, while the Caps tend to get sloppier. Hope it continues.

Great period! That Anderson goal was a passing clinic. Hopefully we can keep out of the box in the 3rd.

Ha. Freaking 7 penalties tonight. Wow.

Sort of glad Wilson wasn't suspended.  He's an idiot on the ice.

Not quite sure what the Face off win % was for us but think we definitely need to improve. Beagle seems to win all of his.

Wow. Terrible giveaway by werenski - and right to ovi. Great save by Bob.

I’m worried the switch to Holtby in net will be a series-changing shift in momentum.  Hope I’m wrong.

Sigh...

You’re asking Bob to be f’n Superman!  This can’t continue!

Oliver Bjorkstand outskated the entire Caps team end to end. Why doesn't he play more?

+/-
Terrible Ted's picture

I've been wondering that for half the season. He's got the best shot on the team, just need to find a way to get him the puck in his wheelhouse. 

+/-

Another bullshit interference call.

+/-
PhillyBuckeye27's picture

Giving them WAY too many chances. 

+/-
PhillyBuckeye27's picture

That's what happens when you don't stay outta the box

+/-

And there just went the series...

You had a chance to break their spirit;  instead, you gave them a shot of adrenaline to their hearts.  Damn it.

Keep OT at even strength and  skate skate skate. We got this. OT is our period. Panerin again! He is due tonight. 2 - 0 headed to Columbus.

+/-
PhillyBuckeye27's picture

We need to shoot the darn puck. 5 shots in 3rd and not looking much better in OT. Come on boys!!!!

+/-

Calvert! Love it! No quit in this team!

I’m waiting to get fisted by Toronto here.

Never mind.  Bob is damn near a freaking cyborg!  Way to pull one out!

+/-

Wow!! 2-0 with a chance to sweep!! What a night from Bob!!

Suck it, Pittsburgh. And yes, I mean the whole city.

+/-
Terrible Ted's picture

That was awesome! One-handed shot, using his knee as a fulcrum, and he shelves it!

+/-

Way to go Calvert.  He's now got 2 OT playoff winners.

Gotta stop with all the penalties though.  I still don't know what the officials expect when a D-man runs a guy into the goalie.

The Jackets have shown that they will put everything on the line to win each game. Don't know if the Caps have that in them. Nationwide is going to be a madhouse on Tuesday.

Great win, but keep in mind we are only half way to winning the series.

I of course agree with everyone that notes the importance of staying out of the box, but none of those were really bad penalties. The goalie interference penalties were all pretty weak calls, Jenner's slash was just trying to aggressively make the play and I think Z's delay of game was just being tired toward the end of a shift. (OK, Dubi's high sticking penalty was a little careless.)

Anyone else think Carlsson (#74) was a big wimp for laying down against the board rolling around in pain, only to jump back in the play about 3 seconds later? Then he actually complained to the referee during the stopage in play.

No Game 3 thread? Is everyone at the game but me?

I'll be on it for game 4. But yeah, I was there tonight and that was a gut punch.
